Nisha Krishnan, journalist and founder of channeliam.com, has been awarded a grant for empowering women tech initiatives from the U.S. Department of State. This project grant is a result of Ms Krishnan’s participation in the Alumni Thematic International Exchange Seminar (TIES), held in Almaty, Kazakhstan in 2019. The project involves a hackathon and virtual summit focusing on the safety of women in cyberspace and public, women hygiene solutions, and re-skilling opportunities for women in the post-COVID world.
Ms Krishnan will organize the ‘She Power’ Hackathon and Summit in association with the U.S. Department of State and implementing partner World Learning. The hackathon is open to startups which have been established by women and which aim to encourage women tech innovations in India. This hackathon is supported by the Kerala Startup Mission.
